Louis Ciccone is a reporter for the Toronto Gazette, but life's given him a forced side activity. This is due to his inconvenient power as a postcognitive, a person who is able to see visions of past events. These visions are always related to a murder of a person he encounters by happenstance. While he cannot control these visions or trigger them voluntarily, they do provide vital leads and clues that allow him to investigate the crime. This leads him into the strangest situations as he investigates them Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Did You Know?

Crazy Credits

When this series was rerun on the Canadian cable network Showcase in the mid-1990s, the network chose to precede each episode with a disclaimer advising viewers that the series - produced only a few years earlier - "does not necessarily depict" the way relationships between men and women were treated in the 1990s. This politically correct disclaimer was roundly criticized by viewers and the media, and was eventually dropped by the network. See more »

I LOVE this
28 March 2006 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

'Cos I'm seeing things, believe me! I've never seen before! 'Cos I'm seeing things, deceive me, Like when you're walkin' out the door, I couldn't believe my eyes !!!

Man I loved this show. I remember the theme song like it was yesterday even though I haven't seen it since i was about 8 years old back in the 1980's. That eerie music when he had the visions, used to scare the pants off me. Gave me nightmares the first time I saw it, but when I got a year older, I found it again and loved it. Too young to be allowed to watch it though. But I still sneaked in the lounge without Mum and Dad seeing me and watched it from behind their chairs. A really great show, probably my favourite show of all time. I hope I get to see it again someday on DVD, I'll buy it straight away. It just had such a charm to it. It's great to see that you guys have seen it too. I also have asked people if they remember it and they look at me as if I'm losing my mind.
